    New Damascus chef knife

    Oal- 14.25 inches
    Handle- 5 inches, stabilized redwood burl and 416 stainless bolsters
    Blade: 9.25 inches long W2/15n20 random/ "star streaked" JMJones Damascus
    2 inches wide at the heal
    .088 inches thick at the spine in front of the bolsters
    .035 inches thick at the spine about an inch from the tip

    The pics are not the greatest but here they are...





    Let me know what you think.

    Nice lookin blade! Redwood burl might be my favorite wood, handle looks very nice. I am digging the 3 plain pins, nice change from most always having the center mosaic pin. Profile looks good too, and I like your damascus pattern.

    Really nice job!
    If it were mine, I'd lower the tip a touch, which would create a more gradual upsweep into it. But I like really low tips. This profile would definitely please most.
    Great use of the forum, if I might say so. This knife has definitely improved on your last one!

    Thanks, I have read alot on this forum and it has made a big differance. I also had one of my kitchen knives personally reviewed by a very prominent maker and he gave me a ton to think about, I think it is sinking in.

    Very nice looking knife! The dimensions and spine thicknesses sound really good. I'll echo Lefty's comments about the tip geometry (I have developed a preference for tips that are dropped more, with a useable flat section an inch or so long near the tip), but for many people they will love the profile you created.

    I'm looking forward to seeing more of your work

    I think it looks great!
    I agree that the plain pins look real good on this knife.
    Very cool damascus and very nice shaping and finish on the handle.

    Burlsource, I purchased a big block (12x12x2) of this redwood from you a year or so ago and had you cut it up and send it to WSSI for stabilization. So, thanks for the kind words and killer wood!
